OSHA Co-Sponsors Wisconsin Workplace Safety and Health Day

Making and keeping the workplace safe and healthy will be the focus of the 5th annual "Safety Day, Reaching Out 2008" slated for June 12 at the Waukesha County Technical College's Richard T. Anderson Education Center, 800 Main St. in Pewaukee, Wis. Workplace safety and health issues will be discussed along with information made available to employers, employees and the general public.

OSHA Milwaukee Area Office, the American Society of Safety Engineers and the Waukesha County Technical College are jointly sponsoring the safety day conference.

"It is a proven fact that when employees operate under a comprehensive safety and health management system, incidents of injury and illness go down," said George Yoksas, director of OSHA's area office in Milwaukee. "The conference is an opportunity for small employers in general industry to attend and learn more about safety and health requirements for their workplaces."

Numerous breakout sessions will address, among other topics: OSHA case studies, workplace hazard recognition, ergonomics, machine guarding, safety and health hazards in welding, forklift and powered industrial vehicles, overhead cranes and hoists, and electrical safe work practices. OSHA staff and ASSE members will teach many of these sessions.

The daylong event will open for registration at 7:45 a.m. CDT and continue with workshops and breakout sessions until 4 p.m. Vendors will also be at the event. Space is limited to 300 participants. Reservations will be taken on a first come, first served basis. A $15 cost includes all-day sessions and a box lunch. Registration and additional information can be obtained by calling Nick Antonio at 414-297-3315.
